College of Nursing Simulation

Simulations Offered by the College of Nursing

Intro to simulation:

Introduction to simulation provides students with an opportunity to become comfortable working with a simulator before being asked to perform in a simulation. Students are given a hands-on opportunity to listen to heart and lung sounds, palpate pulses, check pupils, and communicate with a simulator.

This scenario involves a recently diagnosed noncompliant diabetic client. Lab skills include blood glucose monitoring and insulin administration. Communication and patient teaching is emphasized.

This scenario depicts an ER visit of a pediatric patient previously diagnosed with asthma who has an asthma attack while playing soccer. Lab skills include: pediatric assessment, oxygen delivery, and medication calculation. Interacting with family members is also emphasized.

This scenario involves a postpartum patient who hemorrhages. Lab skills include: postpartum assessment, neonatal assessment, catheterization, medication calculation, and medications administration. Communication skills such as: calling a physician, talking with family, and calming an anxious patient are emphasized.

It includes a home health visit wherein students must assess a postpartum mother, a failure to thrive infant, and an attention-seeking child. Clinical reasoning skills, use of community resources, child development, and client education are emphasized.
